Passion For Excellence Preparation For Life
GLOBE is driven by these core principles that anchor and guide our community, its work, and to which we aspire as a learning community.
These principles include:
- Maintaining High Academic Expectations
- Inspiring Student Learning
- Fostering a Caring Community
- Connecting with the World
- Preparing Students for Life
Our educational program structure, school day, and culture are explicitly designed to support the authentic vision and mission of GLOBE. Kindergarten through sixth grade students are placed in low teacher-to-student ratio classes to provide individualized attention, thus enabling teachers to develop deep relationships with each student and family. We provide a vigorous academic program and create an environment for social-emotional growth. We foster leadership and community among students.
What We Believe
Monthly professional development training, data meetings, and staff meetings bring us together to collaborate to meet the needs of our students. We also designate time to allow our staff to share with one another best practices from outside professional development and through informal and formal observations.
Multi-Tiered System of Supports(MTSS) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. MTSS ensures that we provide rich learning opportunities so all students are identified, supported and served within the framework. We use best practices by providing a solid framework that requires the intervention team to use the six components of MTSS to guide decision making at GLOBE.
Every grade Kindergarten through Sixth grade participates in a Service Learning Project that gives back to the community. Some of the projects our students participate in are Care and Share, Weekends without Hunger, Adopting Animals at the Zoo, and Socks for the Homeless Shelters.
Positive Behavioral Intervention Support
Our S.O.A.R. program ensures that all students understand and are recognized for Safe,On Task, Accountable, Respectful,and Life-long learning.
Key Components of PBIS are
- A common approach to discipline
- Positively stated expectations for all students and staff
- Procedures for teaching these expectations to students
- An active PBIS leadership team
What Makes GLOBE Different?
GLOBE Charter School Attendance Policy
To help maintain GLOBE’s high academic standards our procedures are as follows:
- 4 absences - letter home
- 6 absences - meeting with administration to create an action plan
- 9 absences - D11 hearing with Student Support and Engagement Office if the Action Plan is not followed
- 10 + absences - court proceedings
Illness lasting more than 3 days requires a Doctor’s note to be excused.
Absences must be excused within 48 hours or they will remain unexcused. All excuses are subject to the administrator’s discretion.
Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in Kindergarten and continuing through High School.
We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. We also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent, such as missing 4 days in a quarter (excused or unexcused). Truancy (multiple UNEXCUSED absences) is considered habitual when a student misses 4 days in a 30 day period or 10 days in a school year. (C.R.S.22-33-104)(District 11’s Board Policy JH and GLOBE’s Student Hand Book)
- Children chronically absent in Kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.
- By 6th grade, chronic absences is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.
- By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.
